Spring challenge: Trib's 2012 Peeps Show Contest

Daily Photo Galleries

By Pittsburgh The Tribune-Review
Friday, March 2, 2012
 

We celebrate our love of marshmallow Peeps -- and bunnies, too -- with a contest to stretch those creative muscles. The challenge: Create a diorama of a scene in which all the characters are played by Peeps marshmallow bodies.

Here's how:

Choose a scene -- from history, a movie, advertising or pop culture.

Build your diorama using a shoebox or similar-size space. Create a setting, furnishing, a backdrop -- you are limited only by your imagination.

Take digital photos of your diorama from several angles, and send us two of the best as high-resolution JPEG attachments via email. Include your name, address, telephone number and the title of your masterpiece. Extra credit goes to those who know how to cleverly fling a good pun.

Check out the previous years' slideshows for inspiration -- and a good giggle. We'll begin building a new 2012 slideshow as entries arrive.

The grand-prize winner will receive:

• A $100 gift card.

• An assortment of Peeps products and accessories.

Two runners-up each will receive a $50 gift card.

To enter, email your hi-res diorama photos to Peeps@tribweb.com . Be sure to include the title of your masterpiece, as well as name, address and telephone number. Deadline is 11 a.m. April 2. The winners will appear in the April 7 edition of this newspaper.
